How Fab! Linda G. Hill, our hostess for SOCS, has given us this for our prompt today. Thanks, LInda! 🙂

So, you might be wondering what my photo is all about?

I’m pretty sure I cut it out of a cardboard package of the laundry detergent called Fab.

It’s a cool word, and I still use this word a lot, when I’m liking something and think it’s fabulous.

Well, anyway… I glued this cardboard cutout into one of my old scrapbooks way back in 1968.

What is that odd looking stuff on the letters, you might ask?

That is glow in the dark paint!

See, me and my now husband would go out to fun places around town, and one of those places was called OZ. It was over by the college, and was a cool and fab place. We’d sit on big pillows, be served coffee or tea or cokes, while listening to poetry readings, or someone singing and playing the guitar.

OZ was dark inside, using only black-lights, and everyone was given glow in the dark paints to paint whatever…mostly on ourselves. That was fun. I have a small mirror with the paint on it around here somewhere, too.

We went to OZ a lot of times, but then it turned into an Italian food restaurant. Can’t remember the name of it, but we went there, too. It had wine bottles with candles stuck in the top, so the wax drippings would flow down in multi-colored formations. I actually made a few of these at home, too.

Fab is a fab word, and I wish y’all a fab Saturday!

TAPER/TAPIR – for Daily Post

Standard

TAPER/TAPIR – for Daily Post

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/taper/

Candles of any type are nice, some of which are called tapers. I have lots of candles of all kinds. Mostly, I forget to ever light them.

The tapir is a funny animal, found in the forests, and jungles of some South American countries. It looks like a pig, with a short trunk, like an elephant, but it is actually related to horses and rhinos.

I remember when I was a kid, I had a series of books, which were like children’s versions of encyclopedias. My parents would buy one every time we went to the grocery store…one of those weekly promotion type things, I suppose. Every week the book would be for different letters. I was always fascinated by the picture of the tapir. 🙂

These days I’m more of a ‘taper’, in that I use lots of tape. Duct tape is my go to fix-it for just about anything. I also use lots of clear type tapes. My way of thinking is if one piece is good, two or more pieces of tape are even better.

Which do you like? The tapers, the tapir, or are you a prolific ‘taper’?
